The GIB series: Water-cooled medium-pressure booster compressors for the compression of air, nitrogen, helium and argon – with high delivery rates at final pressures up to 110 bar
Fully automatic compressor control: B-CONTROL II
Optimum free air delivery rates for your application: For the compression of air, nitrogen, helium and argon
Compressor blocks in the BK 23 – BK 52 series: For uniform absorption of the internal gas forces
Robust unit construction: Thanks to fully proven BAUER system components
Standalone installation even under the most difficult ambient conditions: With effective water cooling of the compressor block and dedicated heat dissipation
As cost-effective and durable system solutions for heavy-duty applications, the water-cooled medium-pressure boosters in the GIB series by BAUER KOMPRESSOREN support a wide and varied range of options for post-compression.
The multi-stage boosters can be used in a variety of different ways: as a booster compressor of air from a compressed air supply system, as a nitrogen compressor of inert gases from generators or storage bundles, or as a gas compressor for the compression of methane from pipelines or biogas directly from the treatment system.
In line with your individual needs and industrial requirements, BAUER KOMPRESSOREN can also provide you with tailor-made turnkey system solutions.
All the information you need at your fingertips!
By using targeted water cooling between the interstage and afterstage coolers and valve heads, the system enables the majority of the heat produced to be absorbed by the cooling water.
This maintenance-friendly cooling concept is suitable in particular for difficult spatial and ambient conditions where it would not be possible to use an air-cooled compressor.
Customer-specific paint finishes in other colours or special composition paints (conforming to corrosivity category C5M, for example) are available alongside the standard BAUER paint finishes.
Explosion protection conforming to ATEX guidelines
Compressor units by BAUER KOMPRESSOREN can be supplied with explosion protection and conforming to ATEX directives.
At and above motor power ratings of 75 kW and in conjunction with the B-CONTROL II, a soft starter to protect the unit during starting and effectively reduce starting current is used as standard. The technical alternative is soft staring with a frequency inverter. Read more
Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction ensures that the compressor takes in the gas at the appropriate pressure. Integrated safety valves and pressure monitoring provide an effective means of ensuring that the permissible intake pressure is not exceeded or undershot.
Intake buffer vessel
To effectively prevent pulsations in the intake area, an intake buffer vessel is installed between the compressor and the upstream gas supply networks and/or control equipment. Read more
60-litre condensate vessel
The generous 60 l condensate collection system provides a central collection point for the condensate produced during the compression process inside the compressor. Read more

1 Free air delivery according to ISO 1217
2 Power consumption at maximum final pressure
3 Not suitable for helium
4 Not suitable for argon
Noble gases are subject to certain restrictions where input and final pressure are concerned.
Correction factor for free air delivery:
Helium delivery = Air delivery × 0.8
Argon delivery = Air delivery × 0.95
Correction factor for power consumption:
Helium power consumption = Air power consumption × 1.06
Argon power consumption = Air power consumption × 1.12
